Spelt, kamut, and there’s another name that I almost forgot to mention, farro. It’s all explained in my book, Ancient Einkorn: Today’s Staff of Life. These are also ancient grains but were some of the first hybridized grains through nature’s cross pollination. They have 28 chromosomes, double the chromosomes of einkorn. Are they a better source? They’re a better source than wheat for sure, but they’re still double the chromosomes.

If you think you can order einkorn online, the websites will tell you they’ve got it; and they’ll send it to you and collect your money. I’ve done it, from a farm in Idaho, one in Montana, and three in Washington. I received kamut or spelt from all of them.

I went all the way to Italy last year because a farm was advertising it was growing einkorn. So I flew to Italy to see the fields. They were growing spelt and selling it as einkorn. A big difference. So beware. I explain it in my book.

Love your spaghetti, love your pancake mix, and more will be coming.

Then you’ve got the beautiful NingXia Berry Syrup, which makes these pancakes even more delicious. It has the juices of blueberry, pomegranate, apricot, and raspberry. It also has orange and lemon essential oils and wolfberry seed oil.

Enjoy the wonderful, new Ningxia Berry Syrup and the delicious, healthful einkorn pancakes and spaghetti.

Editor’s Note: This is the final entry of Gary’s Einkorn Blog. Next week we begin sharing Gary’s inspiring 20th Anniversary Convention Address.

Making a Superior Mix Part II

Dhokla flour. I like cooking with it. It can be made of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and other beans found in India. The one we bring in is an organic chickpea flour from India. It’s an excellent source of molybdenum and magnesium and a very good source of folate and copper, as well as a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, protein, iron, and zinc. The fiber is mostly insoluble, which benefits intestinal health. It supports proper digestion, normal weight, and healthy cholesterol.

Einkorn: tasty, nutritious, more protein than regular wheat, and it’s a great antioxidant. In fact the einkorn grain has been shown in a study in Italy to be two to four times higher in antioxidants than our modern wheat today.

It’s a beautiful product. It’s fun to replace with it; and stand by, because there might be some other things coming along. This is the beginning. You have your oils to take care of all of the issues out there, but you need food, good food. Young Living is about serving you what you need, so you can be strong and healthy and be examples in the world to be ambassadors of God’s great work out there in helping make this planet a better place to live for our children. We have to be healthy to do it; and if Young Living has to become a grocery store for you to give you the nutrition you need, then that’s what it’s going to be. I want you buying your food from your own store and getting paid for it. Do you like that? Okay. So you stand by, because I’ve got some other fun things in the works.

Look at the gluten comparison in this graph: whole wheat, 9.92 percent gluten. All-purpose baking flour, 9.20 percent. Kamut, 1.62 percent; einkorn, 1.21 percent; and Gary’s True Grit Pancake and Waffle Mix is just 0.53 percent gluten. I added those other grains to bring the gluten down but still left enough in there that it tastes good and balances very well.

This slide is worth repeating! Gary's True Grit mix is simply brilliant with low-gluten einkorn flour and five NO-gluten flours!

To make my pancake and waffle mix even more nutritious and to reduce the amount of gluten, I added flours that are nutrition powerhouses and are gluten-free. It will take two or three blogs just to list them all!

Brown rice has been a food staple across the world for centuries with its high protein fiber, excellent source of magnesium, good source of selenium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium copper, manganese, and vitamin B3.

Grain amaranth was widely used by the ancient Aztecs as a food staple and in religious rituals. It was considered the super grain of the Aztecs, the golden grain of the gods. It’s a complete protein containing all essential amino acids, including lysine, which is generally lacking in grains. It’s high in fiber, a good source of magnesium and iron. Magnesium is so critical for good heart stability. That is another reason I love the einkorn, the balanced magnesium and manganese in it. Non-GMO and gluten-free.

Tapioca flour, cassava root, from South America is non-gluten, non-GMO. Tapioca flour helps bind gluten-free recipes and improves the texture of baked goods. It’s low in saturated fat and sodium.

Sorghum flour—this is not the sorghum syrup. It has a wide variety of uses, including animal feed, biofuel, brooms, alcoholic beverages, and culinary consumption. Use is similar to wheat, which makes it an excellent wheat alternative. It’s high in protein, iron, and dietary fibers. All of these elements that are so essential to your well-being digest more slowly, with a lower glycemic index, so it sticks with you a bit longer than other flours or substitutes.

Re-Educating a Touchy Gut

Gary has formulated some great products to help with proper digestion. There is Life 5, Detoxzyme, Essentialzyme, and Allerzyme to help with sensitivity issues.

Because some of you have gluten sensitivities, you might say that you don’t dare try it. Well, I can tell you this, I’ve fed it to a lot of gluten sensitive people already, and I have yet to see one person have a single negative reaction to it. I’ve even had some patients with celiac disease eat my einkorn pancakes without a negative reaction.

I’m not suggesting that if you’ve got a serious gluten sensitivity, you just chow down on a box full of einkorn. I suggest that you take one bite and see how your body responds. You’re going to see that there will be some times when you’re going to need to go through some retraining of your body’s responses until it accepts this nutrition. You may have to spend some time rebuilding that intestinal tract by cleansing the liver, cleansing the colon, putting Life 5™ in there to build up that pre- and probiotic activity in the gut lining and making sure that you’re ingesting Detoxzyme™ at night, Essentialzyme™ morning and afternoon, or Allerzyme™, to help build that enzyme storage reserve within your gut so that you can start to live a normal life.

You can have a normal life with normal nutrition, without eliminating key elements that are essential to your well-being. Living with a gluten-free diet is not the answer to a well-balanced and healthy life.

Just remember, einkorn is whole grain, non-GMO, and lower in gluten.

The Amazing Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix

Gary made his Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix as healthy and as low-gluten as possible, so more people can enjoy this healthy grain.

I’ll be happy if you will learn to eat your einkorn pancakes a little slower, which is really healthier for you. You will actually find yourself eating less, feeling better, feeling full, and feeling satisfied, because you are satisfied nutritionally; and it will sustain you longer.

My partners and employees in France have been eating the einkorn grain now for a couple of years, and they have watched physical maladies disappear in their families just from eating the einkorn. It’s amazing what can happen.

I did something a little different with the Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix. Because I know that people have gluten sensitivities because of the past and are conditioned to it, I mixed the einkorn grain with some other ingredients—non-gluten brown rice flour, non-gluten amaranth flour, non-gluten sorghum flour, non-gluten dhokla flour—this is a legume that I get out of India that’s organic—and organic and non-gluten tapioca that comes from India. So we reduced the little bit of gluten in einkorn just a bit more, which makes it just so satisfying to the body.

Now, the Einkorn Spaghetti I didn’t combine with other grains—it’s just einkorn flour and water.

Einkorn, the father of all grains, 14 chromosomes, non-GMO. It has a higher protein content than common wheat and a beneficial gliadin-to-glutenin ratio. This is really critical to have.
